    Girl i was seeing goes travelling

    So i was seeing a girl for 6 weeks recently and it went perfectly. We both got on so well and it was amazing, but she had already booked a trip to go travelling for 6 months. We agreed to just forget about it and carry on as normal before she left. When she left we agreed it is best to stay single, but hopefully keep in contact. Anyway, since being away, we would message every day and it was all very loving and going well. However, i found out she slept with another guy via a social media post from her friend that i came across and put 2 and 2 together so i asked her and she told me. After that i found it hard to keep messaging every single day so loving if she is then going to sleep with other guys at the same time. I told her this and suggested we cool things off and just catch up less frequently but keep in contact and then see how things go when she gets home. We did this a little but then she would message me every day again and it become regular once again. When drunk, we got on to the subject of other partners etc once again and this time she told me she had now slept with 3 other guys.. I havent slept with anyone else. She had told me a few days before she doesnt want to feel guilty for anything she does when she is away. A couple of days after her telling me this i told her that it is not fair to tell someone you love them and then to sleep with other people and it is not really fair. I also said that it if you are texting someone telling them you love them then that comes with certain expectations. Then i wished her well for the rest of her trip.. She just replied saying thanks will do and then unfriended me on social media...

    Obviously we are not officially together, and its her choice what she does but just wondering if i have made the right decision? Who knows what will happen upon her return ?What do you all think?

    It seems as though you got caught up in some false hope because you guys were messaging every day. I think the lesson learned here is that if you agree to be single and still stay in contact, you need to let go of expectations of what that other person does.

    That all being said... yes I think you did the right thing by setting boundaries and letting her know that you don't welcome someone in your life whose actions don't match their words.

    Just because she kept in touch and was loving didn't mean she was "with" you

    I think you made up this relationship in your head because you were texting every day.

    You did the right by ending it because you are obviously in very different places emotionally

    Keep moving on

    She was the one who would message me first very day, and would say she loves me and would ask me if i had slept with anyone else etc.. So was confusing! But yes i agree move on..

    She's single, she can do what she wants. Did you expect her to stay celibate for 6 months? Did you sleep with anyone else in those 6 months?

    Of course not, i said to her its her choice etc and she had nothing to feel guilty for but i just couldn't text her every day saying we love each other as we were if she was then sleeping with other guys surely that is reasonable?

    Not only did you do the right thing, you demonstrated maturity and self respect.

    You are absolutely correct, that telling someone that you love them should have more meaning than just whatever while they also tell you about sleeping around. The two don't go hand in hand. About only adjustment you should make mentally is that after just 6 weeks of dating, there is no genuine love. Infatuation, sure, but true love is more quiet and takes a long time to grow. In this case, this girl was basically stringing you along with empty words, while treating you like a girl friend bragging about who she bagged on her trip so far. She sounds incredibly immature and not ready for anything but the bit of fun she is having.

    This means that you don't put your life on hold for so little. When you called her out on her bs, she blocked you because she realized that you are not a doormat. Again, good for you. Early on in dating, keep your feet firmly on the ground and don't fall for words, pay even more attention to actions faster.
